Some of the Public Defenders in my area admitted to scoring in the 150s during a presentation in one of my classes. I'm not sure if they were just BSing to encourage people to pursue law school, or if it was legit. Public Defenders in my area work at a private firm that has a contract with the county, so they make better than average money and still qualify for IBR and debt forgiveness after 10 years. Both were fairly recent grads, but I think only one was post 2008. Obviously with the new job market, things have changed. I'm not sure what the landscape will look like in 3-4 years, but with a 164 I'm willing to take the chance. If someone who probably got 6-8 more questions wrong than me wants to take a chance I think they should go for it.
